On November 3rd, AK Kramer, founder of the Whole Human Project, presented a parent workshop on “How to be an Ally to your Kids: Navigating the Gender and Sexual Orientation of Teenagers”. This was open to the Holden and church community. AK is looking forward to presenting follow-up workshops for parents too.
The Whole Human Project is a progressive approach to social/emotional and sexuality education for high school youth and their educators. The program combines 50 hours of professional development for teachers and over 100 hours of curriculum for students – all of which answers the question, ‘What does it mean to be a good human?’ We take students through ten learning modules ranging from community building and communication skills, to an analysis and celebration of gender and sexuality, to a non shaming look at sex and consent, and wrap the course up with a really intentional unit being an ally. It’s everything teens want to know and aren’t given the space to ask!
